There are many things wrong with the Trans-Pacific Partnership and with "Free Trade" in general: shrinking wages, job offshoring, threats to the environment and natural resources, food safety, digital freedom, access to affordable medicine, LGBT discrimination, and more. What hasn't been part of the discussion is how one constituency stands to suffer more than many of us realize: the world's women. And not just for obvious reasons of declining wages and lost jobs. Many of America's trading partners have laws in place blatantly discriminating against women and children, virtually legalizing their slavery. Concern over TPP is not just theoretical: some of what we fear is already taking place and threatens to spread with “Investor State” provisions included in TPP. Tune in Sunday to hear from National Organization of Women President, Terry O'Neill about why "Free Trade" is not just a bad idea, but a disaster in the making for the world's women, their children, and all of us.
